Using Favourites on Sky Q

Quickly find your most watched channels by adding up to 99 of them to your Favourites. Find out how by watching our help video or reading the information below.

Setup Favourites

You can setup Favourites in two ways:

  • Go to the TV Guide, followed by Favourites and then select Setup favourites.
  • Go to Settings, scroll to Favourites and then select Setup favourites.

You’ll be offered a list of channels to add to your Favourites, based on what you’ve watched before. Each channel you add will be given a number from 1-99. From there you can choose to Change list or Save list.

If you choose Change list, you’ll be able to add or remove channels and also remove all. Once you’ve selected all the channels you want, select Save list. You can then choose to re-order the list or Save and finish.

Manage Favourites

If you want to change your list of Favourites, you can do so in the same two ways:

  1. Go to your TV Guide, followed by Favourites and then select Manage favourites.
  2. Go to your Settings, scroll to Favourites and select Manage favourites.

Each time you select Manage favourites, you’ll be given the option to add or remove channels and change the order.

Accessing your Favourites

To easily find your Favourites, you can browse the ‘What’s on now and next’ rail (which shows you what’s on now and what’s coming up on the channels you’ve selected to be your favourites) in Home or go to the TV Guide and select Favourites.

For quick access when watching TV, enter its number on your Sky Q remote, e.g. press 1 to access the first channel in the list.

You can also access your Favourites in the Mini Guide. Press select or the touchpad to bring up the Mini Guide, then swipe or press left, select Favourites, and choose the channel you’re looking for. Or if you’re in the TV Guide, scroll to Favourites and select from your list.
